Amanda Serrano Sets Down MMA Debut For March

Five division women's boxing champion Amanda 'The Real Deal' Serrano (34-1-1, 26 KOs) of Carolina, Puerto Rico will be making her long-awaited debut in mixed martial arts in the month of March in the United States.

"It's final and firm, I will be debuting in March. The plan was to debut [in MMA] in February, but I was offered a boxing match for the WBO world title on January 20 in Brooklyn, but unfortunately no opponents showed up," Serrano said.

"I just wanted to fight with Ana Laura Esteche because she was the WBO 140-pound champion and I want to be a six-division world champion to keep putting my Puerto Rican people up, but she did not defend the title in 180 days and by regulation it was left vacant.

"Most of the boxers do not want to fight me, but I'm sure that in the octagon they are all going to want to fight me without thinking too much about.... well, at least I hope so."

During the next few days, the other details of Serrano's debut will be announced.

IN OTHER NEWS: In his first title defence of 2018, WBA #9, WBO #8, IBF #13, WBC #18 Bantamweight & undefeated Australian boxer Jason “The Smooth One” Moloney 15 -0 (12 KOs) gears up for the biggest fight of his career February  24 at St Kilda City Stadium in Melbourne Australia The Co – Main event of the Hosking Promotions “Punches in the Park 7”.

Moloney defends his World Boxing Association Oceania Bantamweight title and challenges “The Prince” Naidjala of Namibia 23 – 4-1 (13 KOs) for the coveted Commonwealth title.

Moloney defends his WBA Oceania Bantamweight for the 1st time, having previously defended the WBA Oceania title Super Bantamweight 5 times in 17 months. Moloney in his first fight at the new weight put the Bantamweight division on notice with an Australian Knock out of the year, putting Julias Kisarawe of Tanzania to sleep 2:58 in the first round October 21st last year.

“I think Immanuel Naidjala will certainly be my toughest opponent to date. Naidjala is a very fast and skilful boxer who lost a close points decision for the World Title so he is obviously a great fighter.

I feel that I am definitely ready for this sort of test and I believe that fighting these top level opponents like Naidjala will really bring the best out of me.

I am very focused at the moment and I know that these are the people I need to beat if I want to achieve my dream of becoming World Champion” states Moloney.
